OK, I said I was going to do it weeks ago, but I didn’t. Because I was procrastinating. But I just finished the SHM state of Hospital Medicine Survey, and it really wasn’t bad at all. It was even fun. I printed it out and sat with my practice manager and we filled out everything on paper first and then it took me ten minutes to type it into the electronic survey. We had a very enjoyable time working on it. YOU DO IT TOO!!!!
Think about how grateful your colleagues will be to get your information and how you can use it yourself!

Here are the instructions again –
Survey Instructions

This survey will be available for completion between January 16, 2012 and March 9, 2012.

To assist you in planning for and completing the survey, we have provided a survey FAQ document, a detailed Survey Guide, and a printable copy of this survey instrument. These documents can be downloaded or printed at

If you need to exit the survey before completion and return to it later, you may do so by clicking the “Exit this survey” link in the upper right-hand corner of any page – but you can only return to your survey from the same computer you used previously, from which the cookies have not been cleared.

If you have questions about the survey that are not answered in these documents, please contact us at [email protected] for further assistance.

If your practice is part of a large entity with multiple hospitalist practices in different locations (such as a management company or multi-hospital integrated delivery system), please contact us at [email protected] for an Excel-based survey instrument and additional instructions.

Non-Academic Hospital Medicine Practices: Please be sure to also submit your provider compensation and production data via MGMA’s 2012 Physician Compensation and Production Survey, available now at

Have you ever wondered if there’s a correlation between Gore-Tex® (Think: rain jacket material) and Social Media? No!? Well, I have… It turns out there may be more commonality between these topics than what one might imagine.

Last October, I wrote about the process some healthcare organizations are engaging in to develop written compacts between physicians and the hospitals where they practice. The point of my post was that there are inevitably some generally accepted (but rarely articulated) expectations that the two parties have of each other, and it can be valuable to […]

I just heard. A colleague, a man of integrity and warmth, a hard-working physician with ideals, ethics and many valued contributions, has taken his own life. His perspectives may have differed from mine at times, but every interaction was infused with respect. He was a good man. Much has been written about the rate of […]
